Bison In The Hundred Acre Woods

Fence went up last November in preparation and this week in March the bison herd arrived. The hundred acre woods now has a small herd of bison roaming in it. Probably for the first time in 150 years. My grandfather and uncles would be amazed to see them on the land they used to farm. I only gave up about 20 acres of farmland. The rest was poplar woods and uncultivated grassland but that gives the herd about 80 acres to live on. Hopefully the rain falls and the grass grows to keep them fed.
Just a quick drive by photo as I passed the farm yesterday. Hopefully more and better pictures to follow.

  1. Did you buy them or are they part of a government program?

    1. They belong to a neighbour who is renting the pasture from us.

  2. A strong fence I hope. You've got a small herd of bulldozers. :-)

    1. The owner has plenty of experience fencing for these animals. It looks very strong (and expensive).
